“His is some of the more interesting dance to come out of China to date… It’s hard to disagree with the contention that he is ‘one to watch’.” (Ballet-Dance Magazine, UK)

“TAO is emerging rapidly as a force to be reckoned with, as well as the most exciting name in modern dance.” (Time Out Beijing, China)

Since its inception in 2008, TAO Dance Theater has established itself as one of the most interesting up-and-coming contemporary dance companies in China. The troupe has presented its work in several festivals in China and Europe, and has also collaborated with leading artists in the genres of theatre, experimental music, cinema, visual arts and installation art in China. The company’s artistic director, Tao Ye, is moving away from naturalist and figurative trends, opting for a headlong (and very successful) plunge into a formal dance form. Montrealers will have the pleasure of discovering his work in two pieces.
